Una panoramica su presente e futuro del riciclo europeo

Il 29 e il 30 ottobre a Milano è in programma Plastics Recycling Conference Europe 2014, conferenza organizzata da Smithers Rapra e dedicata all’industria europea del riciclo delle materie plastiche. L’obiettivo dell’evento è quello di fornire una panoramica sulle odierne opportunità di sviluppo del settore a livello continentale.

Nei due giorni di lavoro verranno presentate varie relazioni da parte di operatori attivi lungo tutta la filiera del riciclo, dalle organizzazioni che rappresentano i riciclatori europei alle aziende del settore, fino ai consorzi dedicati alla raccolta, al recupero e al riciclo delle materie plastiche. Nella categoria “espositori” figura anche Amut Ecotech, società italiana costruttrice di impianti per il recupero e il riciclo di rifiuti industriali e urbani nata dal connubio tra Amut di Novara, costruttrice di macchine e attrezzature per la lavorazione e il riciclo di materie plastiche, e Comer Engineering di Maserada sul Piave (treviso), che realizza impianti per il riciclaggio dei rifiuti.

Di seguito il programma delle due giornate.
